The Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the United States Friday in a closely divided ruling that will stand as a milestone in its 226-year history.

The justices ruled 5-4 that states cannot deny gay men and lesbians the same marriage rights enjoyed for thousands of years by opposite-sex couples. Within days if not hours, the decision is expected to trigger same-sex marriages in states that still ban the practice.

“They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law,” Justice Anthony Kennedy said in his 28-page ruling. “The Constitution grants them that right.”

  1. It isn’t over. The court has 3 more decisions to make starting Monday.
    Outside of kicking them out of office, I see no way anything they do will be reversed.
    Kicking them out of office is virtually impossible to do.
    Historically the court has went against the popular vote a lot of times.
    The historical precedent for what they appear to be doing is not there as Michael has stated. They are making decisions out of thin air.
    The question becomes what do you do with a Supreme Court when it goes wild?
    What happens when the court does not base itself on current law but makes law instead?
    The only thing I know would be a recall. Don’t think it will happen.
    To do what needs to be done would mean every Christian out there opposed to gay marriage would have to get up and actually do something.
    Even then, it might not be enough.
    It will be interesting to see what happens in the next six months.
